Daylight Saving Time Is America's Greatest Shame

Daylight Saving Time [DST] is the greatest continuing fraud ever perpetrated on the American people. And this past weekend, the effect of this cruel monster reared its ugly head again.

Tell you representatives in Congress [Senate and House] you want to stop this insane practice. Let the representative know you want a change made to this outdated irrational Law.

On Sunday morning, Americans across the country were forced to set their clocks back one hour, and this week, the sun will begin its ambling lurch to set at 4:30 in the afternoon.

Technically-speaking, this sleep cycle-wrecking practice of setting our clocks back occurs so we can return to Standard Time after our flirty summer with DST. And the unsettling shift back to these hours, and the hour "we gain," is the back-end of the time-bargain we pay for setting our clocks forward in March to "maximize daylight"—a phrase probably better suited to organisms that rely on photosynthesis—during the spring and summer hours.

Why we try and "maximize daylight" like we're plants is actually an archaic practice first thought up in the late 1700s and often attributed to Benjamin Franklin. As some elementary school teacher may have explained to you, this was a practice to accommodate agricultural workers and farmers (wrong, and we'll get to this in a minute) or to lower the nation's electricity usage.

A lot of that is prime nonsense, pure b.s.. There is actually no benefit or rhyme or reason for why we had to endure this weekend's time shift and no reason we should even be playing with the idea of losing and gaining hours. Here's why:

The Energy Savings Are Minimal

A large push for DST has always been the idea that this time warp saved money and helped conserve energy. In the 1970s the energy crisis helped further this notion along. This is all a myth—the energy-savings are tiny. First off, did you notice any change in your energy bills between 2006-2008? I know that recalling electricity bills is asking a lot, but the reason I ask is that we actually extended DST by a month in 2007. The thought was that a month of DST would bring more savings.

That was wrong. The great energy-sucking state of California actually studied the impact of that extension and found it wanting. "Formally, weather- and lighting-corrected savings from DST were estimated at 0.18%," the California Energy Commission reported.

There was also another study on the state of Indiana, a state that went full DST in 2006. A team from Yale studied what happened post-DST, and found that the average Indianan was hit in the wallet by DST. National Geographic reported:

In their 2008 National Bureau of Economic Research study, the team found that lighting demand dropped, but the warmer hour of extra daylight tacked onto each evening led to more air-conditioning use, which canceled out the gains from reduced lighting and then some: Hoosiers paid higher electric bills than before DST, the study showed.

DST Is Bad For Your Health

Seasonal affective disorder [SAD], is when people get bummed out when the seasons shift. Sunlight plays a role into that, and you'd think that DST would be something everyone would be looking forward to. Wrong. In order to get more daylight during the day, DST short-changes the early-morning sun hours. Those hours are important for those affected by SAD. And it's also very important for your sleep patterns.

"Daylight savings time is anti-physiologic, and it’s a little deleterious, at least for several days," Dr. Nicholas Rummo, director of the Center for Sleep Medicine at Northern Westchester Hospital told Health.com, adding that "light earlier in the day is more helpful for them."

Research has also shown that DST, and shifts and the rupturing of sleep patterns is also linked to myocardial infractions (a.k.a. heart-attacks), car accidents, and medical equipment malfunctions.

Time Shifts Are Bad For Your Productivity 

American exceptionalism is a phrase we've heard a lot recently, and it's usually prefixed by words like "dwindling" or "losing faith in...". If we want to continue this path, then we might as well have DST and shifting time patterns every few months. The weird shift in time messes with our sleep patterns and our bodies, and our work.

"We're encountering data of an increase in extra auto and workplace accidents on Monday or perhaps even carrying through the first week of the Spring time shift," Dr. James Wyatt, at Rush University Medical Center told ABC News in 2012. National Geographic spoke with Till Roenneberg, a chronobiologist, and he explained why:

Light doesn't do the same things to the body in the morning and the evening. More light in the morning would advance the body clock, and that would be good. But more light in the evening would even further delay the body clock. 

DST Is Not Financially Responsible

Think about what you could do with $147 million. That's how much the Air Transport Association estimated the 2007, one-month shift cost the airline industry because time schedules with the world (a lot of which does not believe in DST) were messed up.

DST Is Not Helping Any Farmers

Oh right, we almost forgot about farmers. I remember my second grade teacher told skinny, frail, 7-year-old me, "We do this [time shift] for the farmers." I didn't know any farmers, but I remember feeling noble and helpful. I did not know I was being lied to.

"That's the complete inverse of what's true," Tufts University professor Michael Downing, told National Geographic. "The farmers were the only organized lobby against daylight saving in the history of the country." The reason, Downing explains, is that DST left them with less sunlight to get crops to market.

DST affects dairy farmers the most, since cows' bodies and the milk they're tasked with producing are affected by the time changes.

You Don't Even Like DST

"God, I love getting up an hour earlier," said no one ever. "Me too. I can't wait to have my schedule messed up in the fall," no one replied.

A 2011 Rasmussen poll (for what it's worth, Rasmussen can be a bit skewed when it comes to conservative politicians but seems to have no known bias against time zones) found that 47 percent (ha, Romney, ha) of Americans said DST was not worth the hassle.

So how do we fix all of this? The real evil here is change. No one really minds if 4 a.m. is 4 a.m. They (and their possible heart attacks) mind if for some reason or another that 4 a.m. is now 5 a.m and will be 4 a.m. in a few months. It's time to stop this insanity.

To tell you representatives in Congress [Senate and House] you want to stop this insane practice complete the form attached to this post and either fax, electronically mail, or send the request form to your representatives via first class mail that will let the representative know you want a change made to this outdated irrational Law.

•   Property Rights

 

SB 478 Eminent domain; reimbursement of costs

Introduced by: Mark D. Obenshain | all patrons 

 

Eminent domain; reimbursement of costs. Provides that costs and fees may be awarded in condemnation actions where the amount the owner is awarded at trial as compensation for the taking of or damage to his property is 20 percent or more greater than the amount of the condemnor's initial written offer. Under current law, such costs and fees may be awarded if the amount awarded as compensation at trial is 30 percent or more greater than the petitioner's final offer. The bill removes an exception for meeting the requirements for payment of costs and fees for condemnation actions involving easements valued at less than $10,000.

The bill also replaces the word "petitioner" with "condemnor" in the provision of the Code allowing the court to award costs and fees and allows the court to order the condemnor to pay to the owner reasonable fees and travel costs incurred by the owner for up to three experts, or as many as called by the condemnor, whichever is greater, who testified at trial.

 COSTCO responds to UARF's letter

COSTCO's reply to  UARF's Letter

July 10, 2014

Over the past two days, a number of press reports have created a controversy surrounding Costco's decision to pull from sale the book, "America, Imagine a World Without Her", a controversy that we believe is completely unwarranted. Unfortunately, in this time of extreme views…both left and right of the "political aisle"…such controversy has been exacerbated, in part due to the portrayal by some, of the facts surrounding the Company's decision to pull this book from sale.

Here are the facts:

  1. The book in question was brought into 249 Costco locations throughout the United States on or about June 1.
     

  2. Sales during the month of June and into the first few days of July, totaled 3,753 units, or approximately 15 books per Costco location.
     

  3. Consistent with the policy of our book department for thirty years, and based solely on the small number of copies sold during the four-to-five week period, our buyer, on July 1, communicated to the warehouse locations that the book be pulled from sale, and returned to the distributor by July 15. Costco is not a book store. Our book shelf space is very limited. We exercise discipline in the best utilization of that limited space based solely on what our members are buying. We can't carry every title that our members are interested in reading. We are constantly monitoring book sales, and make decisions to pull books off the shelves frequently based on sales volume to make room for other titles. Politics, or controversy over content, do not influence our decisions.
     

  4. While some press articles, blogs, television and cable programs, etc. have suggested that Costco's decision to pull this book was politically motivated, perhaps due to the political views of certain members of senior management, nothing could be further from the truth. Two of the Company's policies since its inception in 1983 are simple and straightforward:

    • Politics, or political controversy over content, do not influence our decision to sell, or not sell, a given book.
       

    • Costco does not make contributions to political candidates or parties…left, center, right or other…period! Costco does not have a political action committee.
       

  5. The political views of Costco's senior management team, Costco's Board of Directors, and Costco's more than 127,000 U.S. employees are varied, and span the entire range of views. While the two company policies mentioned above are clear and unambiguous, we live in America; and we respect the rights of each and every individual to personally support whatever views he or she may have; but we will not allow political beliefs to affect the products we choose to sell.
     

  6. Some have suggested that Costco timed the pulling from sale the book in question to align with the July 2 opening of the book's companion movie. This is unequivocally not true. The book was brought in to Costco to sell. It didn't sell well. In retrospect, we probably should have waited for the movie to be released to see what sales impact it would have. Given yesterday's dramatic sales increase in the book - perhaps due in part to the surrounding controversy - we have chosen to bring back the book.
     

Costco prides itself in the trust and member loyalty earned over the past thirty years. Costco is also proud that our more than 127,000 U.S. employees, and 189,000 employees worldwide, are the best in retail, and are able to earn wages and benefits that far exceed every other major hourly retailer.

Some in the press will continue to "fan the flames." That's what they do. At Costco, we have earned our members' and our employees' trust over the past thirty years by bringing to our members the best quality goods and services at the lowest possible prices; by taking care of our employees; and by being principled and doing what is right. We will continue operating our business in this way. It's what makes us who we are.

Thank you,

Craig Jelinek
CEO

 HOA regs violate Constitution via free speech

Law and Order Recipes for Solutions

 A Jefferson County judge on Thursday ruled that a Pevely homeowners’ association violated a resident’s right to free speech by banning him from placing a political sign in his yard.

HILLSBORO • A Jefferson County judge on Thursday ruled that a Pevely homeowners’ association violated a resident’s right to free speech by banning him from placing a political sign in his yard.

Jim Lamprecht lives in the Tiara at the Abbey neighborhood. On April 2, 2011, he put a sign in his yard showing his support for Glenn “Ed” Ziegelmeyer, a candidate for the city’s Board of Aldermen, according to the suit. A couple of days later, a trustee of the homeowners’ association called and told him he was violating the rules, known as covenants, against most signs.

Lamprecht filed suit against the Tiara at the Abbey Homeowners Association in March 2012 and was represented by the American Civil Liberties Union of Missouri Foundation.

Jefferson County Circuit Judge Gary Kramer ruled Thursday in Lamprecht’s favor.

“The right of free speech under our constitution is not only secure from interference by governmental or public bodies, but under certain circumstances from interference by private actors as well,” Kramer wrote.

Kramer also awarded $1 to Lamprecht.

“Homeowners are frequently stunned to be told that they cannot engage in such a basic right of free speech as putting a political sign on their own property because of a covenant,” Tony Rothert, legal director of the ACLU-MO, said in a prepared statement.

“Associations of homeowners across the state are now on notice that enforcing such a ban violates the Missouri Constitution.”

A phone call to the law office of Dennis Tesreau, who represented the homeowners’ association, was not immediately returned.

 Bond v. United States

Law and Order Recipes for Solutions Bond v. United States

 

Bond v. United States

 

 

Docket No. 12-158

 

QUESTION PRESENTED:

Two years ago, this Court held that petitioner had standing to challenge her criminal conviction as a violation of the Constitution's structural limits on federal authority. See Bond v. United States, 131 S. Ct. 2355 (2011). The Court rejected the argument that Congress' reliance on the treaty power somehow defeated petitioner's standing. On remand, however, the court of appeals held that, while petitioner had standing, her constitutional challenge was a non-starter because the basic limits on the federal government's power are not "applicable" to statutes purporting to implement a valid treaty. App. 36 n.21. Although it had grave misgivings about its decision, the Third Circuit viewed this startling result as compelled by dictum in Missouri v. Holland, which states that "if [a] treaty is valid there can be no dispute about the validity of the statute [implementing that treaty] under Article 1, Section 8, as a necessary and proper means to execute the powers of the Government." 252 U.S. 416, 432 (1920). The court thus broadly construed Holland as allowing the Senate and the President to expand the federal government's constitutional authority by negotiating a valid treaty requiring implementing legislation otherwise in excess of Congress' enumerated powers. 

The questions presented are: 

Do the Constitution's structural limits on federal authority impose any constraints on the scope of Congress' authority to enact legislation to implement a valid treaty, at least in circumstances where the federal statute, as applied, goes far beyond the scope of the treaty, intrudes on traditional state prerogatives, and is concededly unnecessary to satisfy the government's treaty obligations? 

Can the provisions of the Chemical Weapons Convention Implementation Act, codified at 18 U.S.C. § 229, be interpreted not to reach ordinary poisoning cases, which have been adequately handled by state and local authorities since the Framing, in order to avoid the difficult constitutional questions involving the scope of and continuing vitality of this Court's decision in Missouri v. Holland?
